    He took an official visit to Michigan St. Don’t think Fife was the lead recruiter but may at least have some knowledge of him.

    Assistant Coach Thread

    Same. The fact the it was such a minor extension for Cronin makes me wonder if the details included more money for things outside of his salary.

    Regarding Lewis: Cronin signed an extension and got a pay raise, so have to wonder if that came with increased assistant coach salary pool as well.
  4. Only $20k in moving expenses is shockingly low.

    Yeah, I agree. Also think that if you have interest in moving up, demonstrating a successful run at a second big school would be a huge resume enhancement (largely because of what you said).

    Awesome. Didn’t know that.

    Hired by Larry Brown at SMU, so the connection makes sense.

    Then again, just five years ago he built a top 20 team at SMU (a program on a 20+ year streak without a tournament berth) at age 75. Wouldn't trust him to run a program for lots of reasons, but it is very likely he still has something to offer.
  10. Right. It's an apples-to-oranges, overly simplistic comparison. It's the equivalent of saying, "Mike Woodson is a surefire success because Juwan Howard has been great at Michigan." There's plenty of nuanced conversation to be had about Woodson's strengths and flaws, and no one is overlooking that. But "Sidney Lowe struggled" is not a relevant part of that conversation.
  11. If the difference between college Sidney Lowe and college Mike Woodson matches the difference between NBA Sidney Lowe and NBA Mike Woodson, I'll be thrilled for IU's future.

    Seriously. Geronimo seems to be a good fit for what Woody is looking for.

    And TJD liked it on Twitter. Again, for whatever that’s worth.

    Groce is head coach at Akron. Jeff Boals at Ohio. Greg Paulus at Niagara. Dave Dickerson was a Thad assistant for 7 years and is now at South Carolina - Upstate. Chris Jent is an assistant for the Hawks in NBA and had a couple short stints on Thad's staff.
  15. This, but also: would bet Matta will help with the AAU relationships as well, since that's something that Woodson has likely never developed. Matta can't recruit off campus but he can certainly talk to AAU coaches/HS coaches all he wants.
